Welcome to Third World Studies
The Third World Studies Program has three main objectives:
- To provide an understanding of the Third World and its relationships to the West.
- To provide an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the Third World.
- To provide an understanding of the shifting economic and political nature of the countries designated as belonging to the “Third World,” especially in light of the dramatic political and economic changes worldwide in the late 1980s and 1990s.
